"Do more for your family" and "Be present in the moment" are conflicting messages that moms hear everyday.  

You may have heard it described as being a Mary or a Martha.

Claire McGarry felt that tension and began to look deeper at that Bible story about those famous sisters. Along the way she discovered a gift from that story.

In this episode Claire shares her G-I-F-T method. It's a process where we G-Gauge what our stress is, I-Invite it in, F-Filter through it with God's loving eyes and T-Transform it into grace at the feet of Jesus.  You can go even deeper in the book she has written called Grace in Tension: Discover Peace with Martha and Mary.
